* Water leaks into the trunk spare tire well * I have water pooling under the driver's seat on the right hand side
I have read several forum posts on the above and there are several takes on the problems listed. Does anyone have any solutions? The trunk leak may be just the trunk seal. The interior leak under the driver's seat is more perplexing as I am not sure if it is the sunroof OR as someone posted from the trunk under the rear seat.
Trunk leak might be related to the other leak might not. Check the door seal might be leaking and getting inside or sunroof drain if you have one. Trunk seal is common issue put some new silicon all around and should stop it.

My trunk was filling up because the "repairs" done by a previous owner to the lift struts were not watertight.
Where the base of the strut is attached to the body is a set of simple spot welds, I think. On mine, it had been drilled out and bolted, but no weather treatment applied. Water from outside runs right over where those spot welds are, and thus where the bolts were. I replaced mine and slathered it in silicon goop, problem solved.
I've had water under the driver's seat, but not often.

For water under the driver's seat, check the door carpet to see if it's wet (all four doors). The butyl that adheres the water deflectors in the doors tends to dry out over time, allowing water to pass through.
